Description: Only one of these works was specifically written for recorder (the others were either for the flute or were transcriptions, often not by Vivaldi himself, of violin pieces) but all are performed on various types of that instrument: seven different sized/voiced recorders are used here for these eight sonatas. Lorenzo Cavasanti (recorders), Sergio Ciomei (harpsichord, organ), Caroline Boersma (cello).
